MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police found a driver hiding in a wooded area Sunday, Feb. 2 after a pursuit ended in a crash near 6th Street and Holt Street — injuring an innocent driver.

The pursuit began shortly before 11 a.m. Sunday when officers spotted a black vehicle headed northbound on S. 13th Street near Howard Avenue at a high rate of speed.

Police tried stopping the vehicle, activating their lights and siren, but the driver refused to pull over.

The pursuit ended in a crash near 6th and Holt, where police said the driver took off on foot into a wooded area, and there was a brief foot pursuit before officers found the person hiding — and arrested the driver.

That driver and the innocent driver hurt in the crash were taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening.
